CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble's Oral-B is teaming up with dental expert Jonathan Levine to encourage people to "power up" their oral health routine, while addressing the urgent need for oral health care in select areas of the United States.
While many Americans have a healthy mouth, there are more than 47 million people in the U.S. who live in places where it is difficult to access dental care, the manufacturer said. Through Levine’s nonprofit organization, Glo Good, Oral-B will help provide basic dental cleanings, dental care products and education to underserved Americans.
"I recently provided oral health screenings, treatments and services to hundreds of genocide survivors and their children in Rwanda. I believe everyone deserves to have a healthy smile, to be empowered by their smile, and to have the knowledge to manage their own oral health," Levine said. "This year, by joining forces with Oral-B, a worldwide leader in the brushing market, we are able to help Americans take charge of their oral health by providing them with essential oral care services, products and education."
The Oral-B Professional Care Smart Series power toothbrush line uses oscillating-rotating-pulsating technology to attack sticky plaque from multiple directions, providing more plaque-disrupting movements than regular manual brushes and the leading sonic technology toothbrush, the company said.
